Johannesburg - She was raped four times in less than four hours. After her second ordeal, the 18-year-old from Kaalfontein was ordered by her alleged rapist to wipe the semen using her underwear, after which it was taken from her.


This was the teenage rape victim’s evidence on Tuesday at the South Gauteng High Court, sitting at the Palm Ridge Magistrate’s Court.

Emotional throughout, the girl told the court she could not remember the man who had raped her on the night of February 17, 2012.

All she knew was that a man was arrested after being linked through DNA to her rape.

The girl was testifying against alleged serial rapist Justice Albert Morake, 34, who has pleaded not guilty to 175 charges.

The charges include 53 counts of kidnapping, 27 of robbery with aggravating circumstances, 34 of rape, 12 of sexual offences and two of attempted murder.

On Tuesday, the court heard that the victim was 16 when she was raped. She said her alleged rapist had met her at about 9pm on the night of the incident.

She was with her boyfriend when a man approached her at gunpoint outside her doorstep.

The couple were taken to the veld, where the first rape occurred. Then the alleged rapist tied up her boyfriend and took her to a different spot.

It started to rain during the rape and she was taken to another area, where she was raped again.


The 18-year-old said she was taken again to the first spot, where she was raped for the third time, before returning to the second spot, where she was raped for the last time.

The trial continues.
